CYPEPLUMBING Water Systems is a program created to assist project designers with the design and analysis of potable water supply installations. It is integrated in the Open BIM workflow using the IFC standard.
The program can perform a partial or complete design of the installations of any type of building. It contains predefined equipment catalogues and allows for user catalogues to be introduced and configured.
It generates floor drawings, results and quantity reports for pipes and equipment that can be exported to FIEBDC-3 format.
CYPEPLUMBING Water Systems carries out the hydraulic analysis using “Darcy and Weisbach” equations and calculates the friction factor using the Colebrook and White formula. The program analyses the installation assembly and calculates gross and simultaneous quantities of flow, where users can define the simultaneity factor.
In its first version, the program includes predefined configurations to comply with the following codes: CTE DB HS 4 (Spain), NF DTU 60.11 (France), DR n.º 23/95 (RGSPPDADAR – Portugal). Design checks can also be configured to comply with other standard limits or limits imposed by users.
